My Mount Puckmore

Leafs Mount Puckmore, a statistical study

Being as I'm only a leafs fan when the Sabres suck/are bankrupt (and I'm a youngin')  Its only fair that I choose Leafs mount puckmore members on more... measurable criteria. (All measurements include games as a leaf only.)  Plus, when you've got an almost 100-year history, there's too many choices not to consult the leaderboards.

We'll start with goals, as supposedly they are critical to winning hockey games.  Mats Sundin leads in goals.  Also, aside from that silly Vancouver fiasco, he's quite the beloved player.

Next I'm going to check assists.  I plan to pick a defensemen here... Oh look! Borje Salming.  He seems like a good choice.  Interestingly, there are only two leafs defensemen with even half of his 620 assists, Tomas Kaberle and Tim Horton.

Next is GP.  Leader here is... George Armstong, playing a whole 2 more games than Tim Horton!  There's a bit of debate here, then, but I want more forwards than defensemen, so I'll go with Armstong.


Now for the last slot:  I could either choose a goalie, a builder/coach(i.e. Conn Smythe), or Tie Domi here.   I think i'll try a goalie first, and then go on to the other two choices if that doesn't work out.  I'd kind of prefer them to be from different eras than the other players, so let's see who we get...  First off, WOW... you guys go through goalies quick!  I suppose I could select either Turk Broda or Johney Bower here, as they're really apart from everyone else by a fairly large margin, but I'm going to go with Broda because of that whole "Different Era" thing.

So the final answer is:

Turk Broda  (1937-1952)
George Armstrong   (1950-1971)
Borje Salming   (1974-1989)
Mats Sundin   (1995-2008)

Just throw Wendel Clark and Tim Horton in there with Conn Smythe as owner/coach/GM/whatever, and you've got a pretty awesome all-time Leafs starting lineup, wouldn't you say?

[EDIT: Grammar, insufficient number of bad jokes, Had Arnott instead of Armstrong in one place for some reason...]
